are underperforming in ways you don't hear them talking about. they are about 70% below performance in florida today. they are not where they need to be in wisconsin or ohio. they are underperforming out in clark county in las vegas. if you look county by county where the democrats need to be, they are nowhere close where they need to be. on top of it this early vote business you hear the democrats talking about. they are cannibalizing. they are going after the early vote. we feel great where we are at. >> greta: why is wisconsin so close? >> wisconsin is always a tough state. how many times do we need to win wisconsin to make people republicans are good. >> you were off by 14 points in 2008? >> 2008 was terrible through the midwest for republicans. the democrats are nowhere near where they need to be. if you look at the top ten counties in wisconsin, scott walker won seven out of ten twice. we know where we need to be. if you go to wausau, eau claire, green bay, we are overperforming >> greta: the fact that scott walker won by four points in 2010 and then the recall democrats were chasing him down,
.s. commander under investigation and a florida socialite allegedly behaving badly via e-mail. at the center of it all, technology. i talked with human behavior expert wendy walsh about why sex and technology have become intertwined. >> because it's become a paired stimulus. here are stats that might freak you out. let me get this right. single guys can send pornography either on their computers or iphones for about three times four times a week. married times, over seven times a week for 20 minutes. now they're getting platonic texts and e-mails from average people but it can be a little confusing in the mind. if you don't believe pornography has become addictive, think of this. a full one-third of all content on the internet is pornography. so it's a big market. >> you say pornography is affecting our text messages. are you talking about sexting? >> well, because it's a paired stimulus. what happens is men are using their iphones and their computers as sources of arousal. and they also use in it courtship and dating. their brains also become addicted to a constant new stream of brand-new i
latino areas that did not get polled including florida and just saying one party figured it out. the other party didn't. >> if you look at individual stocks and sectors, yesterday you got at the point where you go by sector and not risk on, risk off broader mark. we see that here. financials are seeing softness in pre-market. coal stocks seeing softness. there is a notion that now there will be more reimbursement for patients who previously couldn't pay for their care and so that will be a huge tail wind for these stocks which goes to buy from neutral this morning. >> a couple guys piled on hca. i do feel that you're supposed to sell the medical devices because there's a tax on them. things are playing out the way we would expect. i do think that the market is not understanding the power of what bernanke is doing in housing because you would get the firing of bernanke very quickly, okay, and you're not going to get that now. he's obviously contributed. the rates are down any way. i just think that if you bought bank of america because you thought romney was going to win and that
governor, terry branstad, said this. quote, i don't think it's helpful. florida senator marco rubio said, quote, well, senator marco rubio according to journalists, quote, distanced himself. kelly ayotte weighed in on "andrea mitchell reports" today. >> i listened to the comments. i don't know what the context fully was. i don't agree with the comments. we have big challenges that need to be resolved as you know. >> so you're not comfortable with what you heard him say. >> no, i don't know the full context of them, but i don't agree with the comments. >> you know, nobody sounded quite as annoyed with mitt romney in these comments as louisiana governor bobby jindal asked about the romney comments yesterday at the republican governors association conference. >> no, look, i think that's absolutely wrong. two points on that. one, we have got to stop dividing the american voters. we need to go after 100% of the votes, not 53%. i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're
to victory is florida, virginia and the midwest. some in the southwest. states like new mexico, probably nevada, obama is going to win. so that is where the money is going. it is going to ohio. we have new money in pennsylvania. that is likely to stay in obama's column. but this is where with, coming down to the wire and, you know, the real possibility here is that romney could win the popular vote and just fall short in electoral college. that is looking like a possibility. but romney, romney advisors of course say they have the momentum and that they're going to close the gap in ohio over the next several days. jon: well they're also looking at some states that republicans traditionally haven't done well at. michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, maybe pennsylvania. romney has a chance in each of those states. >> yeah, the polls show he does have a shot. i think that the best shot out of all those four is wisconsin. obviously paul ryan's home state. the polls have been kind of all over the map there where obama had a big lead earlier and then it tightened. certainly paul ryan is helping in wi
allen west has conceded defeat to democratic challenger patrick murphy. that's in the race for florida's 18th congressional district. west who is a tea party favorite released a statement this morning saying quote, while any questions remain unanswered today i am announcing that i will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election. final results of a recount sunday put murphy ahead of west by over 1900 votes. >>> the latest now in the petraeus sex scandal. we'll be hearing from tampa socialite jill kelley's twin sister natalie today. she'll be joined by attorney gloria allred. meant to clear up possible misconceptions and explain her relationship with petraeus and his wife, his wife holly. former cia director david petraeus and general john allen each wrote glowing letters to help her during child custody hearings. jill kelley's e-mails exposed petraeus' affair with his biographer paula broadwell. complicated web we weave. >> we're on the verge of jumping the shark on this. >> gloria allred is in town. >> can't wait for that press conference certainly. business, christ

to where we have to -- we're in ohio every time, we have to win florida and ohio every time. what we need to do is be competitive throughout the united states, and i think young people want a less aggressive foreign policy. they don't want to put people in 20 years in jail for marijuana use or nonviolent crimes. and i think they want a little bit different approach to immigration. >> okay. you say you want to be part of the national dialogue. perhaps a bigger part of it. we shall see. senator rand paul, thank you very much, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> and now to the face to face meeting today between u.n. ambassador susan rice and her chief republican critics. ambassador rice on capitol hill, just this morning, to meet with the people you see on your screen here. you have senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte. she went to address concerns they have over statements the ambassador made over the u.s. mission in benghazi on september 11th that left ambassador chris stevens and three other americans dead. i want you to listen to what senator graham, republican south carolin
